Text from the artist:

“Welcome to Scandinavia, where breathtaking landscapes comes along with innocent nations. Where wonderful history meets modern solutions with progressive ideas. Where people are happy and pure, living in a great cooperative with nature and themselves. Have you been wondering how can you be like them? What should you wear, move, talk? How to make your interior more hygge with a basic income? Look no further, this performative lecture will explain to you why you will never be like them. I will show you your place and how you can transform from being a ‘lazy immigrant’ to become one of those ‘good hardworking immigrants’.

I will lead you step by step, how to become more invisible, so you will not destroy this image. And how you should be grateful.”
